Great!
12 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie was rated 8th in a ballot of the best Swedish films ever made, and I can understand it. Although nowadays a little aged, the intensity and nearness to the ones involved is universal and panchronical. The film bears a witness of how the society is unable to cope with the less well-off. The humanity is overwhelming. As assassinated Olof Palme said: "An incredibly human document". 10/10.
